Another week has gone by. People are heading off on holiday en masse. And there are those staying at home chilling in their backyard. For those interested in green spaces, regardless of current location, here’s Inspirational garden designs – w29-2022.
- CORAL from Portugese brand GANSK is a decorative resin reinforced planter made from fiberglass, finished in matte white RAL 9010 and thus suitable for outdoor use. The somewhat spacey yet sleek design would look good in a modern backyard, or in a hospitality venue’s outdoor area.
- The Peacock planter is a result of a collaboration between Finnish designer Eero Aarnio and VONDOM. Mr Aarnio’s favourite colour is white, but this amusing and symbolic creation comes in a variety of colours, including bronze. It’s made from polyethylene resin and is 100% recyclable. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
- Fleurs de Villes – FEMMES is a shortlived exhibition organised by the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney, Australia. Running from August 19-28 this is a fresh floral celebration of 16 remarkable women including Kylie Minogue, Frida Kahlo and others. Fresh floral mannequins on show are created by some of Sydney’s favourite florists. I’m sure those able to attend will see some gorgeous outfits – the designs that can be achieved using blooms!
- These seriously glamorous chairs and table form part of the Biophilia Collection from VONDOM in collaboration with Ross Lovegrove. The ultra-modern shapes are due to advanced rotational moulding technology and displays “a dialogue between time, shape and space”.
- Using parterres as a garden design feature goes back hundreds of years. Think Medieval times. Darling Park in Sydney, Australia, clearly shows, however, that an old idea can be revamped to suit even the most modern architectural complex. The Crescent Garden is divided into six continental rooms, and the 3000 sqm garden is designed to form the shape of a large waratah when viewed from above. More than 1000 trees, plants and shrubs have been planted representing every continent in the world. All this sounds hugely inspirational to me.
- This Bloom lamp is another product from VONDOM. Designed by Eugeni Quitllet for Vondom and metaphorically, the lamp captures the flowering stage found in nature. Lit with LED technology – remote, charger, battery and RGB options vary depending on model.
